Rojas on a path of evolution
After 17 years, seven full length albums, and three major US tours under his belt as lead vocalist for Caribbean Rock fusion band Orange Sky, Nigel Rojas is looking forward to a bright future as he enjoys a 2013 full of “musical evolution.”
Rojas, who is currently enjoying heavy rotation on local stations with the nation-building track Blue Skies Ahead, has been having a tremendous year both with his band and as an individual artiste, said a release from his handlers.
The Trinidadian singer-songwriter whose influences range from rock greats Motley Crue and AC/DC to Caribbean music icons Bob Marley, Lord Kitchener and Andre Tanker made waves with Differentology, his Carnival collaboration with Bunji Garlin.
Along with Orange Sky, Rojas recently performed for international music industry executives at the recent AMMBCON music business conference showcase and also shared the stage with celebrated Reggae stars Sizzla Kalonji, Richie Spice and Anthony B at the Good Life Music Festival on Independence night.
For this event, Rojas and band performed a set which comprised of original Reggae and Rapso infused material. Orange Sky also performed the single Love Each Other which was composed by Rojas and featured T&T Reggae acts Marlon Asher, Jah Melody, Prophet Benjamin and Mr King.
In the release, Rojas expressed his pride at performing in the Festival: “It is always a great honour to share the stage with artistes that I love and admire. In this event there were many such artistes, however, the local Reggae performers are very close to my heart”.
Later this year, Rojas intends to launch a guitar instrumental CD entitled Sunset Siesta along with a supporting instrumental concert. He admits that musically he has been bitten by the Soca bug since his Differentology experience and hints of upcoming alliances with some of Soca’s biggest names.
